Sad to hear that Del Colussi passed away this morning.
It was an honour Del, rest in peace.

With fond memories of my ab-initio and subsequent training the loss of Del leaves us all and the community as a whole poorer.
RIP my friend. Ciao.

Spent my school holidays with Uncle Del, he used to pick me up in his old Toyota bakkie reading the post while we drove through to Fisantekraal for the days flying, subsequently did my ppl with him, such a legend I should have made the time to catch up with him but the race of life... R.I.P - you will never be forgotten Uncle Del - Sean
